As the world changes, we as a plastic manufacturing company wanted to make sure we are doing our part in preserving our planet for the future generations. We want to maximize the use of our natural resources and at the same time, reduce the amount of plastic waste created by consumers around the world.
TS Plaspack are now moving towards the Post consumers recycle plastic resins and take the initiative to be one of the first company in Thailand to manufacture PCR products.
We want to be the positive change in the plastic industry and encourage the community to be more aware of their plastic consumption. With every product manufactured using recycled resins, plastic waste around the world are being reduce and nonrenewable resources are being preserved. TS Plaspack would like to encourage you to be part of this positive change and join us in our journey to a safer and cleaner planet.
Post-consumer recycled (PCR) resin is the recycled product of waste created by consumers. Before the plastic waste is turned into resin, the plastic materials are gathered and sent through a proprietary process to produce plastic resin pellets.
From a scientific standpoint, using post-consumer recycled plastic (PCR) makes all the sense in the world. It is cost competitive, available, and creates greater positive impact than other choices. For example, the carbon footprint of manufacturing 100% PCR Polyethylene terephthalate (PET), like in a water bottle, is 60% lower than virgin PET (that includes all the energy to collect, recycle, and remanufacture the plastic). This is significantly higher than the carbon benefit of plant-based PET (like the Coke & Pepsi bottles) or bioplastics like PLA. Furthermore, PCR eliminates the use of virgin plastic altogether, regardless of whether it is manufactured from plants or petroleum. By using PCR we eliminate the need for new plastic, which is especially important given the current low rates of recycling
Consumers will actually pay more for products made with post-consumer plastics. According to an international study by Nielsen, 51 percent of respondents between the ages of 50 and 64, and 72 percent of respondents between 15 and 20 said they would pay more for products and services coming from businesses dedicated to making a positive ecological impact.
